Important Things to Know About Nicotine Inhaler

After consulting with your healthcare provider, you may decide to try the nicotine inhaler (Nicotrol® Inhaler) as part of your smoking cessation program. Like other nicotine replacement products, it works by providing a controlled dose of nicotine into the body, which can help reduce the uncomfortable symptoms of withdrawal that occur when people quit smoking.
 
Unlike gums, patches, lozenges, and other forms of nicotine replacement, this product comes in the form of an inhaler that uses cartridges to deliver a controlled dose of nicotine.
 
It's important to know that the nicotine inhaler does not address the psychological aspect of cigarette addiction, and it works best when combined with other forms of support, such as counseling. In addition, side effects are possible and may include things like throat irritation, cough, and headache.
